Festival Lookbook 3/3: Comfortable Footwear

With school starting and festival season coming to an end; this last and final festival post will be helpful all year round for any event where you have to do a lot of walking. That’s right we are talking shoes today. Now we all know that shoes can either make or break an outfit and I don’t just mean aesthetically. If your feet are hurting and you’re in pain with every single step you take, you don’t care how cute your shoes look in that moment. You want to be comfortable. This is why I think that boots, like the ones I’m wearing here, are the perfect way to go. However I should note you should always opt for a low low heel if you can, as this will decrease pressure on your arch while still sticking with the funky festival theme. Velvet is also the perfect choice to go for boots considering how warm of a material it is. Meaning that if you are wearing for example, a dress or coat, the velvet will make you warm faster as it is not breathable. Still, it’s a good way to add some color to an otherwise all black outfit.

There is of course other good footwear alternatives. Tall flatform shoes have the benefit of being super high up like a tall heel, though still very comfortable due to the flat sole. My only issue with wearing these to a festival type setting is that you could roll your ankle quite easily, especially if you are not used to walking in them. Lace up sandals are also a good alternative to boots, though my only concern with this choice is that your open toes will most likely get stepped on at some point. This is why I personally opt for closed toed boots with either a 1 to 3 inch heel for comfort. All other outfit details will be listed below along with direct links to all items featured.

Festival Lookbook 2/3: Crochet Tops

When trying to dress comfortably and keep cool during the hot festival days, next to lace, crochet is your best bet. Crochet items have holes that allow air to flow thru which also adds texture to the garment, creating a pretty pattern. This is why they’re perfect for festivals as the bohemian designs are right on theme. A little crocheted top is one of my favorite pieces to wear because it is thick enough to hold its place while you are dancing and running around, but still breathable so you don’t get too hot. I went with all black in this outfit to keep it pretty simple and then added a pop of color with my bag.

Personally I feel the most comfortable in an all black outfit. I then like to add some color with my accessories as to not over-saturate the look. This little red suede bag is perfect for festivals because it is small enough to not get in the way but can still hold all your essentials. Also, when going to a festival you want to bring a fun bag but also one that you can hopefully style again after the festival season. This bag is a perfect one for every day or a night out as well. All other details will be listed below along with direct links to all items featured.

Trend Talk: Grey

DSF8301 Recovered Recovered zpszjb8iq1l Trend Talk: Grey

There is a recent obsession both in the fashion community and of my own, with neutrals. Though black-and-white has always been a staple for many years, the new two colors that I have started seeing everywhere are grey and light pink. Today I want to talk about the grey trend. A head to toe monochrome look in grey, in my opinion, can look a little bit like PJs or lounge clothes due to the color. This is where the use of tailoring and fit is most important. Since this is a bit harder to perfect I did not opt for a full mono look.

In this outfit I decided to really tone down the grey by just styling grey accessories, like my big fuzzy bag and shiny grey boots. I chose these items because they are two different textures; they do not match at all or have that cutesy look you get when you match accessories in an otherwise all black outfit. I love a fuzzy textured bag in early spring because it can still be a bit chilly so it doesn’t look weird to have fur (faux fur btw). With the start of spring and then the onset of summer comes with a more bohemian vibe, so I thought it was perfect to break out my bell sleeve romper. Will be wearing this a lot more this season as rompers are a quick go to item for spring/summer. Other outfit details will be listed below along with direct links to all items featured.

Styling: Pearls


IMG 5892 after zpsknn9rcdv Styling: Pearls

Since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching I want to feature a perfect little delicate gift. Pearls have always been a luxury status symbol in fashion and society. A simple little pair of pearl earrings is I think one of the best valentine’s gifts you can get, and also one of the safest if you don’t know their exact personal favorite style. They are romantic and beautiful but also very practical; they are a nice addition to your wardrobe as they are a very classic piece. Never too over-the-top but also always a very sophisticated look. I am also a fan of this design because of the very small delicate pearls, as I feel like a large pearl earring can look a bit costume. These ones are the perfect size.

I decided to pair my little pearl earrings with my new leather jacket; the thick leather is a great juxtaposition to the dainty look of the pearls. I wanted to match the big circle silver stud details on my moto jacket to the circle shape of the earrings too. My shiny lucite heels also bring attention to the silver details and the luminescent pearls. My bag has a red interior which I think brings a bit of color to the look and also contrasts well with the design on my dress. All outfit details will be listed below along with direct links.

Stepping Outside Your Fashion “comfort zone”

IMG 8483 1 zpsru8tdmky Stepping Outside Your Fashion comfort zone

Around the new year I talked a lot about my one and only fashion New Years “resolution”! That was to wear more color this year, and if not more color, then just at least less black. So that’s where we are starting today; grey. Stepping into a more minimalism style is also something I’m working on this year.

An easy way to make a classic “masculine” piece like a trench coat look a little more girly, is to pair it with cutesy non-black items. My new designer bag has a very chic look with the shiny jewelry-like hardware and is in a very pretty grey color. This saddle bag is definitely a step outside my fashion comfort zone but I’m absolutely in love with it. The grey and gold combo is a bit more unusual too, and will I think encourage me to wear more colors in between. I had to pair the bag with these grey boots; however I should note they are not the exact same tone of grey. Though if you notice the colored perspex heel on the boots, it helps to match the two tone effect in both pieces. Other outfit details will be listed below along with direct links.
